Namco Bandai Games began streaming the fourth promotional video for its J-Stars Victory Vs. "team battle action" video game on Tuesday. The 158-second video features the new theme song "Fighting Stars."

The video begins with Akira Kushida, Hironobu Kageyama, and Hiroshi Kitadani — the "AniSon Big 3" — announcing that they finished recording "Fighting Stars." Kageyama said that they were able to make what they think is "the greatest song absolutely full of rock 'n' roll and fighting spirit."

The video also highlights new challengers in the game's character roster: Seiya from Saint Seiya, Koro-Sensei from Assassination Classroom, Allen Walker from D.Gray-man, Neuro from Neuro - Supernatural Detective, and Hisoka from Hunter x Hunter. (The last three characters are only support characters.)
